We arrived at Fort Lauderdale at around 1.30, parked the car, walked to the check-in area and were on board by 2.15 - fabulous! From beginning to end, we thought this was a wonderful cruise. The staff, food, surroundings were all better than we hoped and than we had experienced in the past, although we thought our previous cruise line, Princess, handled things pretty good too. We ate in the main dining room apart from two nights when we went to the Tuscan Grill and Murano - definitely not to be missed and worth the up charge, without a doubt. Main dining room food was good to - on a par with Princess. Always hot and the service always excellent. Only did 3 shows but enjoyed them. Live music around the ship - poolside, atrium and small bar close to the speciality restaurants was also excellent. Pools were busy but that's normal, I guess. Pool Butlers did a fairly good job of removing towels from chairs that hadn't been sat on for a while, although in general some people are very thoughtless with their 'saving' of seats for hours on end while they are not there. Overall a fantastic cruise and we will be returning to Celebrity, without a doubt.

Cabin review: Deluxe Veranda 2B

9127 A long way from the 'food end' of the ship but that wasn't a problem for us. Plenty of closet space and shelving (some above the bed). Great bathroom with a real shower door. Very quiet - never heard any noise at night.

Port and Shore Excursions

Catamaran Tour
Tiami Catamaran trips - have used them before and they are lots of fun and very professional. They stayed alert to anyone in the water who became in need of assistance.
